Updating Plex to 1.20.2 broke Nvidia GPU transcoding for me - appears that it is no longer supporting older version of Nvidia drivers:

https://support.plex.tv/articles/115002 ... streaming/
"Starting with Plex Media Server v1.20.2, driver version 450.66 or newer is required for NVIDIA GPU usage."
QNAP are still on driver version 440.82: https://www.qnap.com/en/app_releasenote ... IA_GPU_DRV

Rolling Plex back to unfortunately did not reenable /fix Nvidia GPU transcoding either..

Trying to troubleshoot with Chuck in Plex forum case others have this issue: https://forums.plex.tv/t/new-plexserver ... nap/643817

One suggestion Chuck had was
If you understand how the Nvidia tar ball is structured, you can manually upgrade the Nvidia drivers yourself in /opt.
Did anyone ever try this or even know where to start?

not sure if this is related or not, but for my desktop pc, the latest 456.71 nvidia drivers were very bad and caused issues. had to downgrade back to 456.55 for stable drivers which i tested as just works.

that said, the latest nvidia drivers added some cve security patches...... so staying on an older driver may be a concern.
According to NVIDIA September Security Bulletin, this driver also contains fixes to 4 security vulnerabilities.
